  • "Obscene Fantasies": Elfriede Jelinek's Generic Perversions by Brenda L. Bethman

    By Brenda L. Bethman

    This dissertation examines Elfriede Jelinek’s research of Austria’s and
    Western Europe’s “obscene fantasies” via her “perversion” of accepted kinds
    in 3 of her best-known texts (Die Liebhaberinnen, Lust, and Die Klavierspielerin).
    It additionally investigates how those texts, firstly look much less brazenly political than
    Jelinek’s later paintings, may be visible as laying the basis for her later, extra
    political, research of Austrian fascism and racism. The dissertation consists
    of 3 chapters; every one investigates a principal psychoanalytic thought (alienation,
    jouissance, perversion and sublimation) and reads a Jelinek textual content on the subject of the
    genre that it really is perverting, exposing the “obscene fantasies” that lie at its middle.
    Chapter One examines how Jelinek depicts alienation (in the Marxist,
    socialist feminist, and Lacanian senses) in her 1975 novel Die Liebhaberinnen, and
    explores how Jelinek’s depiction of alienation features to make Die Liebhaberinnen an anti-romance. bankruptcy addresses even if Jelinek’s novel
    Lust(1989) is a pornographic or anti-pornographic textual content. I examine the complicated
    relationship among aesthetics and pornography, arguing that many different
    Jelinek students cave in the contrast among mass-cultural different types of
    pornography and the high-cultural pornography of Bataille and Sade, and therefore
    fail to appreciate how her textual content is concurrently pornographic and anti-pornographic. bankruptcy 3 specializes in Jelinek’s novel Die Klavierspielerin (1983),
    examining the advance of its protagonist as a (perverse) sexual topic, and
    her final failure to accomplish a strong sexual place and the way Jelinek’s textual content
    perverts the style of the Künstlerroman. It additionally discusses Erika’s education as a
    pianist as a potential causal issue of her perversions and absence of sexual identification,
    concluding that her lack of ability to sublimate demonstrates the similarities (and
    differences) among the artist and the pervert, illustrating how Jelinek’s novel
    deviates from the normal Künstlerroman.
    The dissertation argues that the disruption of genres is considered one of Jelinek’s
    most major literary contributions, her works functioning to create a
    “negative aesthetics” in place of a favorable transforming of general forms.
    Jelinek rejects an identificatory mode of writing and refuses to create “positive”
    subjects, who prefer as a substitute to provide artwork that may be a “critique of praxis because the rule
    of brutal self-preservation on the middle of the prestige quo” (Adorno, Aesthetic
    Theory, 12).
